  • Forecasters are projecting some rain for various periods over the holiday weekend.
  • Temperatures will be about normal for the time of year.

Yorkers might want to keep their umbrellas handy because forecasters are anticipating some periods of rain during the extended holiday weekend.

Aaron Tyburski, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in State College, said the York County area could see some rain  Saturday as well as Sunday.

“Unfortunately it does look like there will be some wet weather,” he said.

Weather: Tyburski said Friday could potentially see some thunderstorms develop.

Brett Rossio, meteorologist for AccuWeather, said Friday morning could see some showers, but the day will be dry after that.

Saturday will be sunny at first, with some thunderstorms developing later that day, according to Tyburski. That wet weather will stick around through Sunday, he said.

“Sunday looks like the wet day," he said.

partly cloudy

Rossio shared similar thoughts about Saturday, but said Sunday's rain will likely hit later in the day.

“It looks like the best chances for (rain) are going to be very late Sunday,” he said.

Tyburski said the rain on Sunday will keep highs in the 70s.

However, the rain isn't expected to last much longer into Memorial Day.

“Monday looks like maybe a shower in the morning, and then becoming partly sunny, with highs near 80," he said. AccuWeather is projecting similar highs for Monday.

Rossio said there will be "spotty" showers in the afternoon hours Monday.

The NWS is projecting a high of 76 Monday, and AccuWeather is expecting a high of 79.

Tyburski said the temperatures for the holiday will be closer to average for this time of year. He said last year temperatures were above average — in the 90s — for Memorial Day.

“Weather-wise, I think it’s going to be a good weekend,” Tyburski said.
